I like this place and have been several times over the years. The place is clean and the service good. The food lacked any finesse and the sauce was sloppy on my Madras. One of the others had a Biriyani which was pretty poor. Like many ethnic restaurants i wish they would perhaps charge a bit more but serve better... More

So many Indian restaurant's available but this one stands out as different. The food is very good with all the sauces tasting different rather than an Indian base sauce. The choice is very good with options from different regions of Indian not seen on most menu's. The service was good and we had a lovely evening celebrating a 14th birthday.... More

I went there with a group of friends (about 12) one Thursday evening in March. Straightaway I knew the service would be great, having been there in June last year. I myself had poppadoms, a very good starter (can't remember what they are called), a chicken tikka bhuna, with special fried rice and a couple of drinks. I did ask... More

We really enjoyed our meal tonight! We haven't been for some years but we were still greeted as old friends. Delicious food! The lemon rice was wonderful as was the prawn kashmir curry. Mushrooms, tarka Dahl, all first class. Warm moist towels. Coffee and a little chocolate too. They think of everything.... We were made to feel very special! Thank... More

Used Roti for the first (and last) time this evening. The Duck tasted bitter, the pasanda sauce was far too sweet and could have been any flavour with a little dash of colouring. 34 quid could have been better spent having our taste buds hammered to the pavement. My wife had the lamb Dhaniya. The meat, 5 pieces, were like... More

We hadn't visited the Roti for a while and decided to go out for a meal and try it again. We had a fantastic meal, quite reasonably priced and with good service. I enjoyed it so much recommended it to friends and we went out as a group the following week. Again the food was good and no one had... More

We have been to Roti before and was very pleased with the service, food and pricing. That was all in the past. Wind the clock forward and it's the complete reverse. We ordered drinks shame they couldn't get it right. Ordering the food was not slick, far from it. The starters came fairly quickly but then the ridiculous wait for... More

I wasn't sure about the food quality at my previous visit but decided to give Roti another go. I wish I hadn't. The food quality is poor, many dishes taste pretty much the same, the rice was cold and the lamb shanks were tough. Add to this the price of the drinks & you have a poor quality experience &...

You may not know this but the majority of Curry houses in Norwich are vegetarian, but Roti is not...its great, a real find and with an extensive Bangladeshi menu, which does not disappoint. Pleasant environment, good service and polite waiters, so works well. Well worth a visit and indulge in a good curry night, we drove 15 miles to this... More

We visited Roti on a Saturday evening as a group of 5. The restaurant was busy but we had prebooked a table anyway. The staff were friendly and the service was great. The gentleman behind the bar was extremely welcoming and friendly to everyone in the restaurant. The food was excellent, portion sizes were generous. I had a lamb tikka... More

Description
Old meets new at Norwich���s Roti, a sublime Indian restaurant situated just five minutes from the city centre. Great care has gone in to the creation of the Roti dining room, at one time a traditional pub but now a clean, sleek space in which modern comfort is as central to the design as the look, intended to bring to mind the old gentlemen���s clubs of the Empire era. Booking is essential as Roti tends to get very busy, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings when locals flock for food before letting their hair down in the bars and clubs in town. It���s easy to see why this place is so popular, not only is the service friendly but Roti���s food is superb, earning plentiful good reviews from internet reviewers and five stars from the Norwich Evening News. Banned from using artificial additives, the kitchen relies only on natural ingredients, some imported from India for authenticity, to produce flavoursome and authentic Bangladeshi and Indian dishes.
